Car Crashes Through Guardrail, Plunges Into New Jersey River, Killing 2: Police

At least two people are dead after the car they were in crashed through a guardrail and plunged into a New Jersey river on Monday morning, police said.

A white Toyota sedan was approaching the George Street exit on Route 18 North in New Brunswick when it veered into the guardrail around 1:45 a.m. and plummeted into the Raritan River, police said.

Two people in the Toyota were killed in the crash, police said. It's unclear if other people were in the car at the time. 

Divers were at the scene early Monday and the northbound lanes of Route 18 North were closed to traffic for a significant stretch. 

The closed lanes reopened just after 5:15 a.m. 

Police said an investigation into why the car crashed off the roadway is ongoing.
